Here at our office, we treat all phases of gum disease from a localized deep cleaning, to a Type IV Perio Treatment. Our practice has employed the best hygienist on the Gulf Coast with over 25 years of experience treating periodontal disease and periodontal bone loss.
Depending on your individual situation, Dr. Scott will come up with a custom treatment plan just for you. Often treatment includes scaling and root planing, where our skilled hygiene team numbs the area and quadrant by quadrant cleans below the gum line. You will also be counseled with regard to home care and possibly be put on special medication or medicated mouth rinses to treat the infection.
If you experience gum recession, Dr. Scott is experienced in the prestigious Chao Pinhole Technique. Traditional recession was surgically treated by cutting strips of tissue from the roof of the mouth, cutting and lifting the gum tissue and stitching the grafted tissue to the gums, covering the exposed tooth and tooth root. The procedure was painful and invasive. However, with Dr. Scott there is no need to experience all that pain. By utilizing the pinhole technique gums are lengthened, covering the recessed area without grafting or cutting.
We also perform crown lengthening procedures to aid in properly restoring severely worn or fractured/decayed teeth so that proper support and tissue health can be attained and maintained.
Dr. Byron Scott and his Springhill Dental Health Center team want their patients to experience optimal health in all areas of their life.
